    Re: Flipping backwards

    I got a hold of a vet and she asked me these questions...

    How often does this happen?

    Is he completely normal just before and after this? (Does he just keep playing after flipping or does he lay there for a while?)

    Does he only do this on the floor?

    How old is your bird?

    What kind of diet does your bird eat?

    I will get back to you as soon as you answer these!

    Thanks! It happens about once or twice a day. She is 2 1/2 yrs old. She is on a pelleted diet. She only does it while on the floor, usually after you just sit her down.

    One more question:
    Is she completely normal just before and after this? (Does he just keep playing after flipping or does he lay there for a while?)

    She sure is cute!

    Re: Flipping backwards

    Another series of questions:

    "Is there anything that seems to stimulate this to happen besides sitting her on the floor?

    Does she do it in her cage?

    What brand of pellets? And does she eat any treats?

    This certainly describes seizure activity, but if you could video this so I could witness this it would help. Try and tape before during and after.

    Does your bird have the ability to fly?

    Has she ever had any head trauma?

    Has she been examined by an avian veterinarian recently?

    Re: Flipping backwards

    Sherry, after she flipped what did she do. Was she normal afterwards or dazed. I would think if it was seizures or nerves she would be so dazed and out of it afterwards. Poor girl it must be so hard seeing her do this and not knowing why.

    It would be a very strange behavior thing for a bird to do but I know at times I have saw boomer do some very odd things before that make us wonder why he would ever do that but he does. When boomer got sick on us and did his weird neck thing he does his vet kept telling me it was behavior and I knew it wasnt because he did other odd things as well. I hated she told me he was fine when I knew he wasnt but once booms vet saw him do it she knew then he was sick. It sure would be great if this flipping was just a happy bird thing but man is that odd, just a bit too odd to me.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
